In The Valley Below are striking a new chord on their upcoming sophomore album The Pink Chateau, set for release Oct. 5 via Bright Antenna Records. The alternative pop-rock group marks the announcement with a vibrant video for their latest single “Desperate Dance,” available exclusively on Billboard below.
The duo, composed of Angela Gail and Jeffrey Jacob, takes their sound far from the Grand Rapids, Michigan, home studio where the album was recorded and infuse a propulsive pop sound to their roots-rock sensibilities.
No track gives better proof of their refreshed boundary-pushing style than the wild ride of “Desperate Dance” and its flashy accompanying video. Filmed in the untamed expanse of Joshua Tree in California, the pair embody the song’s thematic struggle to maintain a sense of self amid a world of temptations with a vivacious flare and kaleidoscopic visuals.
